A Woman Left Lonely

live@thelibrary at Oldham Library , Greaves Street, OL1 1AL, Oldham. 

Thursday June 13 , 7:00pm  £5

1960’s rock icon, Janis Joplin died from a drug overdose on October 4th 1970 at the age of 27. Had she lived she would have gone on to bring more of her great music to us. While her work is known to those of  her generation, it is increasingly less so for those following. Linzi Matthews brings her remarkable singing talents to the fore, recreating songs associated with Janis Joplin to give us a look into the world she inhabited. Linzi Matthews credits include Blood Brothers (West End & national tour), Loot at Hull Truck and at Oldham Coliseum in their hugely popular pantomimes. Her TV credits include Eyes Down with Sheridan Smith, BAFTA Award winning Warriors with Matthew McFadden and Damian Lewis and Coronation St.
